BASCOM MON'ITOR BUILDING ' :Monroe, Washington GERMANY FAILS TO ELECT PRESIDENT Lack of Majority Necessitates Another Balloting of Na- tion on April 26. Berlin.--The elections held through- out Germany Sunday in the first popu- lar balloting for the president of the republic, failed to elect, no candidate having the required majority. Dr. Karl Jarres, the candidate of the combined nationalist and con- servative bourgeois parties, led the poll with 10,787,000. Otto Braun, the socialist nominee, polled 7,838,000 and Dr. Wilhelm Marx, ex-chancellor, cen- tralist, 3,986,000. Approximately 27,- 300,000 votes were cast, or 3,000,000 fewer than in the parliamentary elec- tions last December. This is equiva- lent to about 70 per cent of the electorate. The second balloting will take place kpril 26, and on that occa.sion the candidate obtaining the largest num, ber of votes will be elected, the same candidates may be on the list, or the various parties or combinations of partie may name new candidates. In view of the inconclusive termi- nation of the election it is assumed that a new set of candidates will be put forward by the nationalist bloc and the three constitutional parties for the election on April 26. The outstanding feature of the voting was the substantial gain scor- ed by the socialist party, which again established its title as the strongest individual party in Germany.

Montana farmers joined Pacific northwest grain men in upholding the rates in the hearings. WASHINGTON COW WINS Pure-Bred Holstein From Fort Stella- coom Is Champion.
